I had my tt done on Dec 29. I had tried everything to get rid of the excess around my waist. I am 6'1 and weigh 205. I have been as low as 180 and even at that weight I still had the muffin top, even though it was not as big, it was still there.I have worked out consistently for the last 7 years. My diet has been very strict at times, and not so much at others. I started biking last summer and have decided to try a triathlon. It is very frustrating to try on a cycling jersey and feel like a stuffed sausage. So I decided to get this area fixed and move on with my goals. I decided to post this for the other guys out there trying to decide. I have spent a lot of time looking at the before and after pics and reading about others experiences, albeit, most of them are women. I am 3 1/2 weeks out right now and am doing really well. I started back at the gym last week, just walking and riding the stationary bike. I plan to start doing some weight training, only machines, next week.
